So says these esteemed Canadaian researchers and I fully expect the UK government to seize upon this news to justify why it has been systematically destroying our education system. We in the UK are destined to be a very thin nation.
Have a song choice that always brings a tear to the eye? This is one that does it to me — I think the lyrics are so sad, so poignant …..and I guess every son must sometimes have thoughts like this. Give it a listen.
Obama has released an ad mocking John McCAIN because he can’t send an email.
However what the Chosen One doesn’t explain is that the REASON McCain doesn’t send email is that he can’t use a keyboard because of the relentless beatings he received from the Viet Cong in service to hiscountry. The more I see of Obama the more I dislike him. From the Boston Globe (March 4, 2000):
McCain gets emotional at the mention of military families needing food stamps or veterans lacking health care. The outrage comes from inside: McCain’s severe war injuries prevent him from combing his hair, typing on a keyboard, or tying his shoes. Friends marvel at McCain’s encyclopedic knowledge of sports. He’s an avid fan – Ted Williams is his hero – but he can’t raise his arm above his shoulder to throw a baseball. McCain was a natural Web candidate. Chairman of the Senate Telecommunications Subcommittee and regarded as the U.S. Senate’s savviest technologist, McCain is an inveterate devotee of email. His nightly ritual is to read his email together with his wife, Cindy. The injuries he incurred as a Vietnam POW make it painful for McCain to type. Instead, he dictates responses that his wife types on a laptop. “She’s a whiz on the keyboard, and I’m so laborious,” McCain admits.
Is there ANYBODY out there -whose surname is not Putin that is- who actually believes the claim by Russian President Medvedev that likened last month’s war with Georgia to the September 11 terrorist attacks on America?
Speaking to foreign academics and journalists at the giant GUM department store opposite the Kremlin, the Russian leader stepped up his defiant rhetoric against the West, which is fast becoming the hallmark of his short presidency. “The world has changed and it occurred to me that August 8, 2008 has become for Russia what September 11, 2001 was for the United States. This is an accurate comparison corresponding to Russian realities,” he said.
It may have occured to him but sure as heck not to me! On 8/8 Russia INVADED another sovereign democratic state. It was a planned act of Russian territorial aggression. It is in NO WAY analagous to 9/11 and yet deluded Mdevedev thinks it is. How bizarre! Russia reverts to form and then plays the victim.
Did you read that speaking at a meeting in London, prominent UK islamist Anjem Choudarry, right-hand man of
exiled hate preacher Omar Bakri Mohammed, said:
It may be by pure
conversion that Britain will become an Islamic state. We may never need
to conquer it from the outside. We do not integrate into Christianity. We will ensure that one day you will integrate into the Sharia Islamic law.
His comments were made as voice of hate Bakri warned that the next 9/11 would take place in the UK. Speaking
via video link the exiled cleric said Osama bin Laden had taught the
Americans a ‘lesson’ seven years ago, but the ‘crusaders’ had not
learned. He said the next ‘9/11 will take place in Britain, the next 7/7 [London bombings] could take place locally’.
In a way I do not blame these Islamists for their hatred – what to expect from a pig but a grunt (As Obama might say)? But I do feel that those such as Choudarry and his ilk should be behind bars as they represent a real and present threat to us. As for Bakri, is he not a perfect target for a little assassination. We should also be ensuring that no welfare benefit is paid to those Muslims who seek to conjugate for Allah – if they want a big brood – fine – let ’em pay for ’em.
“A third Labour MP has confirmed he has written to the party asking for a leadership election. Knowsley North MP George Howarth confirmed the move, after Labour Party
vice chair Joan Ryan said she had asked for nomination papers to be
issued. It comes after junior whip Siobhain McDonagh was fired for calling for a debate on Gordon Brown’s leadership. The Labour Party has told the BBC that nine of its MPs have asked for papers to be sent out.”
I think that it now looks likely that a leadership election WILL be called, sooner rather than later. Labour WILL lose the Fife by-election and the head of steam gathering at the moment will force this tumultuous event. But what then? Can someone appear who can beat Brown? If so, who? What impact would that have on Brown and his pals? Is it possible that changing captains two years before a general election can save this political Titanic? I doubt it since I believe that the general public now believes the Labour government to be irredeemably economically incompetent and it is THIS more than anything else that will do for them.
Look for Howard Stern to shock again on Tuesday morning when he’s due to kick off the auction of a 22-year-old beauty’s virginity.
Expected to step on the block, so to speak, of Stern’s Sirius radio studio is a San Diego woman who says she wants to sell her maidenhood to pay her college tuition.
“I don’t have a moral dilemma with it,” says the pretty brunette, who’s using the pseudonym of Natalie Dylan “for safety reasons.”
“We live in a capitalist society,” she tells us. “Why shouldn’t I be allowed to capitalize on my virginity?”
Dylan was introduced to Stern by Dennis Hof, proprietor of the Moonlite Bunny Ranch, Nevada’s famed legal brothel (seen on HBO’s hit series “Cathouse.”)
Hof says the auction will be conducted online via bunnyranch.com, and that the deal will be consummated at the Bunny Ranch, where Dylan’s sister already works. “I think it’s a tremendous idea,” he says. “Why lose it to some guy in the backseat of a Toyota when you can pay for your education?”
She’s already earned a bachelor’s in women’s studies and is hoping her shiny little moneymaker will bring in enough to pay for a Masters degree in marriage and family therapy. I’m loving the irony.
So, we’ve got one spineless mother, an absentee father, a thieving stepfather, a prostitute sister and this virgin (choke, cough) willing to whore herself off on national radio to earn a few bucks. I’m torn between cracking jokes at her expense or raging at the societal cesspool I live in that would actually sell a young woman for ratings.
“Gordon Brown is under fire after he said all
pensioners would get free home insulation that will only go to over 70s
or those on benefits. The PM made his promise on Thursday when he unveiled a £910m energy saving plan agreed with the power giants. But when a 60-year-old woman called the government’s helpline she was told Mr Brown had made a mistake.
Unveiling the package of help for energy consumers
on Thursday, Mr Brown said: “All lower income and all pensioner
households will be eligible for free loft and cavity wall insulation
and other energy saving measures that could save them up to £300 a year
in their energy bills.” But a Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs
(Defra) spokesman confirmed only pensioners over 70 and some pensioners
on benefits were eligible for free cavity wall or loft insulation.
Discounts are available for others. “
Looks like some pensioners are more equal than others….
Yip, still riffing on the musical selection..but this story says it all about just how unloved, unwanted and useless the UK PM Gordon Brown actually is…
“A junior member of the government has been sacked
after breaking ranks to call for a challenge to Prime Minister Gordon
Brown as Labour leader. Assistant whip Siobhain McDonagh said she wanted a debate about
the party’s future and a “huge number” of other Labour MPs also wanted
a contest. A government spokesman said she had always been “anti-Gordon” but the Tories said Labour was in “civil war”.”
1. Why was she selected as a government whip, someone tasked with ensuring support for the PM, if she was “anti-Gordon? What does THAT say about Gordon Brown?
2. The idea of a government whip verbally whipping her boss, the Prime Minister, is surreal!
And to think this was the week that Gordon fought back!! Everybody now..Gordon is a mor-ore-on!
